Rethink is a nonprofit committed to reducing food insecurity by developing practical models that distribute nutritionally dense, culturally sensitive meals to nourish healthy and thriving communities.

As 50 million Americans are facing food insecurity, we believe that access to food is essential to human dignity and our ability to contribute to society.

We create practical options to access healthy meals. Our current initiatives include Rethink Certified where we empower restaurants to feed their communities in need using surplus, donated or purchased food, and Rethink Café, our donation-based café where anyone and everyone can come and enjoy a fresh, nutritious meal.

Through our programs, we've partnered with over 50 New York City restaurants & dining establishments and served over 2 million meals through 75+ community organizations. We are growing, with locations in NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, Nashville, and Miami.

Together, we can rethink food. To learn more, visit us at
